I am a farm girl, married to my high school sweetheart. We grew up on farms 9 miles apart and went through 12 years of school together. I liked him in grade school, but it took until we were Juniors in high school to get him interested in me as more than a friend. I have never lived more than 10 miles from home, except in college, but have travelled as far as France, Germany and Switzerland. We live on our own farm and have raised three of our six kids. The last three are growing up fast.
Yesterday we stopped at a nearby small town's library book sale. Books: hardcover $.25, softcover $ .10, bag $2.00. The girls and I got 5 bags, then I went back with my mom later and got 2 more bags for me and 2 bags for her. What did we find? Perry Mason (set), Gene Stratton Porter, Beverly Lewis, George McDonald, Alexander McCall Smith, Lauraine Snelling, Fantastic Mr. Fox (Roald Dahl), Encyclopedia Brown, vintage Zane Grey, Janette Oke, Incident at Hawk's Hill, Ralph McInerny (Father Dowling Mysteries), Elizabeth Berg, L.M. Montgomery and vintage books to craft with. Score!!!
